th epurgaroty is once said a place in hell,but the fact is,it;s a place for purification...if you die and your sent to hell,you'll be at the purgatory if you really regret the thing you did in life..

Isn't it also known as 'limbo'? If you believe in life after death and all that, then it does for you.

Wiktionary says: Purgatory, in Catholic theology, is the stage of the afterlife where souls suffer for their sins before they can enter heaven.

If there is such before going to heaven, I'd rather choose to go in a lavatory rather than a purgatory.
LOL I just like the rhyming sound. Sorry for the unnecessary sentence xD

The point is this whole Heaven and Hell story real, or not? After knowing the answer to that one might take into consideration the question you've just asked.
Lets hypothetically think that there is a Hell and a Heaven. Most religious denominations say that your destination has been chosen right afterwards you died, or were in the process of dying. The sins and the good deeds you've done will be inspected by God and his Holy fellows, and then you either end up in Heaven, or in Hell.
I would say that purgatory is a mere joke, as I doubt that you can make your sins undone by merely doing good deeds or getting yourself purified. And then, purgatory would as well mean that one can wash off one's sins, and go to Heaven, even if one killed a many people in one's life. Obviously this would lead to a disequilibrium between Heaven and Hell, as Hell would be automatically nullified, as I doubt that a many would still want to go to Hell when the chance to go to Heaven is given.



Purgatory is a place that the church apparently made up as its abolished now,
when the church was very corrupt the story of purgatory was established and people charged members of the decease money to get their loved ones through purgatory quicker

Purgatory is pretty much like Pre-hell lol, which I like to call it Hell.

It's Pre-prison??? when it really is Prison

I mean your getting punish for your sin, and I think thats pretty mess up.
And it's not god's doing it's just people scarrying people

Its Hell, "sorry people" just make up purgatory to say I'm a lesser sinner. Once a sinner always a sinner, a sin is a sin.

if anyone of you a believer 99.999% of all of you are going there that ...0001% was jesus

I know i'm not going to that grey place call Purgatory, I'm going to some place like 50% grey LOL

BTW the life your living could pretty much be Purgatory

Wow, nearly every single post (if not all) has got Purgatory wrong!
Purgatory is not pre-hell and it is not a teaching that has been abolished.

Purgatory is a place to cleanse those who are already chosen to go to Heaven. Thus if God decides that you should go to hell, you will and there is no way of getting out. Heaven is a place where only those who are competely pure can enter. But really, who can say that they are completely pure when they die. Simply shouting at someone out of anger is a sin.
